The Montreal Canadiens have selected defenceman Kaiden Guhle with the 16th pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Guhle is noted for his shutdown style of play, with excellent gap control to limit the space of the opposing forwards. He upped his offensive totals this season, though play with the puck is not his main strength.

We will have a deeper look at the newest Canadiens prospect soon.
